Yes, the visa reimbursement for the West Coast Hackfest was issued, as the majority of the board (but not all) voted in favour of this.

The board should not have done this until a decision was taken about visa reimbursements. The board bended rules. This isn't fair.

The board is not bending the rules. The board sets the rules. They can decide whether to decide on each visa reimbursement individually or to set a policy or to ask the travel committee to set a policy. They can also as a group decide on any exceptions. 

It's perfectly reasonable for them to decide on one visa reimbursement individually before there is a policy if for some reason they are not ready to decide on the policy. Moving forward, regardless of the policy, there might be good reasons to handle cases as exceptions.
